The Best Kind of Sale

Is there anything better than a sale on top of another sale? In my world, NO. That's why I love when J.Crew has their additional 30% off promotion on final sale items. Here's what I'm lusting after right now:

English-Inspired Interiors

If you follow me on Twitter, I'm sure you're aware that I'm a huge fan of the period drama Downton Abbey. My love for English country houses isn't restricted to the fictional—I'm currently working on my senior seminar for my history major, where I'm studying the fall of the British aristocracy.

During my semester abroad, I had the chance to visit many a country manor, such as Blenheim Palace and Waddesdon Manor. While living in such an environment isn't very realistic anymore, I can't help but love the elegance and extravagance of these houses. And that's why I love Lee Stanton's Laguna Beach, Calif. home, featured on Architectural Digest's website. Gorgeous artwork hangs on the walls, giving this Southern California home the feel of an ancestral home. I love the deep wood, formal furniture, and endless details.






The classic English manor house is brought to the modern era—what do you think?

Glass Envy

I have a problem.

I want a pair of glasses. Yet, I have absolutely no reason for them. My mother's side of the family is 100% glasses-wearers. She's had them since she was 7, and putting on her glasses, I get a dizzy headache so fast it will make your head spin (literally). The number one trait my mother was worried about passing onto her children skipped both me and my brother—we both inherited our father's 20/20 vision. But that doesn't change the fact that I'm dying for glasses (talk about a first world problem). But how adorably intellectually-chic are they?



I am completely obsessed with the eyeglasses from Warby Parker. The Duckworth, Percey, Downing and Mallory frames are my favorite. I'm especially loving tortiseshell frames. However, with little need for prescription eyeglasses, I think I might just invest in a pair of $14 readers from Urban Outfitters when I want to feel a little more intellectual. Do you wear glasses? Am I missing out?
